A Trend Worse Than Open Office Plans

How "hot-desking" is a growing trend in many workplaces

If you are sitting in a cubicle or—lucky you!—behind a desk in a space with a door —then the concept of “hot desking” may still be foreign. It was to me, until recently. And, frankly, I’m not too hot on it.

I learned all about hot desking when I recently relocated to Minneapolis from Chicago to join an integrated creative agency on their amplification team. It was a selling point at first—aside from the “Minnesota nice” people and the award-winning work. My new colleagues and I are untethered by a designated desk and are free to work wherever we want—the newly renovated headquarters, a coffee shop,  home, while traveling, or anywhere we can be most creative and productive.

Sounds pretty cool and progressive. Right?
